These are all well and good, and I'm not saying Turner has 0 value.  What I'm saying is he is getting outplayed by other players on the roster and the team would be better off trading him.  For example, my claim is that the Pacers would be better off with Jaylen Brown, Sabonis, and Goga compared to Sabonis, Turner, and Goga.  It's great to have a big who is a good rim protector and who can shoot 3s, but he has a worse RPG than Russell Westbrook, Richaun Holmes, Patrick Beverley, Rui Hachimura, and Rudy Gay.  Every year, we've been waiting for him to have his breakout season, and he still can't average 15 PPG.

One good performance doesn't negate a career of underwhelming performances.   He's still averaging less than 12 points and 7 rebounds this year despite being a starting 6'11" C with nearly 3

Did anyone here watch the press conference with Malcolm Brogdon? Really seems like a nice guy with strong character and leadership. 

Terry Rozier got $58 mil for 3 years.....19.3 a year ..and we got Malcolm Brogdon for 21 mil a year   I think we might've gotten a better deal...

1. The Celtics are not trading us Jaylen Brown for Myles Turner.

 

2. You just need to give up on the "breakout" season for Myles. He's not going to average 15 PPG in this system unless he is taking 9 3's a game like KAT is. 

 

The other 4 players in the starting lineup are all averaging 17 PPG or more this season. There is only one ball. Myles Turner is not getting the touches and shots necessary to average 15. 

 

Goga is a complete liability on defense right now. We should not be relying on him in any regard until he learns how to defend without fouling.

 

 

 

If Myles Turner played in this game, he would be contesting all these shots and making it a lot more difficult on Harden. Sabonis just cannot provide that defense and Goga can shot block, but he gives up too many fouls. 

 

Myles never has high rebounding numbers because he constantly has to protect against other players on the team getting beat and meeting guys at the rim. The rest of the team is there to rebound the ball.

 

 

I'm not even thinking about trading Myles until/unless Goga improves to a place where he can be impactful while playing 20-25 minutes.

Edmund Sumner will play against the Pistons tomorrow. I wonder how he factors into the rotation.

 

Either he takes Aaron Holiday/TJ McConnells minutes, he remains out of the rotation, or they go back to a ten man rotation where they do small ball and play all 3 guards together at some points.

Pacers are doing real well.  I wonder when Dipo will be back.  

 

I saw a story on NBA Hoops Rumors that he is looking at late January for a return.  No need to rush as long as we're winning games right now.

 

Will be interesting to see how the chemistry of the team will change one he's back.  Obviously, everyone wants him back, but there will be some adjustments to make when he is in the line-up compared to how things are working now.

 

But, it's all good!

At this rate, I don't expect him back until after All Star Weekend.

Didn't catch the entire game, but did watch the end of the 4th quarter. Nice to have the team almost healthy again.

 

I really, really hope Sabonis gets an All Star selection. He deserves it.

Outside of Embiid, I'm not sure there is a better big man in the East right now.

What a game by Pacers on the road against good Den team.

 

Congrats Sabonis on getting his first Triple double and Only Lithuanians to achieve that feat in NBA. The guy is a beast and I think the best old school Big man in the NBA or atleast EAST. 

 

Loveeeeeeeee the game by Brogdon / Warren / Sabonis / McBuckets. 

 

Lets go to Utah and beat them.... 1-0

Just think, last year there were a bunch of fans that wanted Sabonis traded. 

I said they were crazy then and wasn't wrong. haha

Sabonis has very good basketball IQ I was watching last night game and Turner was standing in the paint while Sabonis pushing the defender and Brogdon has ball so he signal Turner to move to corner 3 which open the lane for Sabonis.

Him and Lebron were JUST "hugging it out" last night... what a shame. 41.. 4 children :( sorry Kobe. all the things he accomplished on the basketball court.. but I'll always remember how happy he was when the eagles won the superbowl.

 

RIP distant cousin. 

Yeah I am here at work and that is all everyone is talking about. Everyone is in shock. Pacers have always been my favorite team but I have liked the Lakers since the Magic days. Kobe and Shaq era was fun too. RIP Black Mamba, prayers go out to Vanessa and his kids. I am in shock right now.

    • We don't have a qb,  so no we don't need a wr more than a qb
    • My pick for QB would be Michael Gallup. Oh wait, he's a WR. Yeah then I will still take Michael Gallup as we need receivers more than a QB right now.   Send Rock to Dallas for Gallup. 
    • Gus Johnson is a play by play guy.   Romo is color commentator.   They don't have the same job.    Both are very good at what they do,  but they do different things
    • I see many of the draft "experts" talk about what the Colts will do in the draft.   The draft process on the QB position, even with all the improved scouting techniques is a highly flawed .   If you look at history some interesting facts come out. Drafting a QB in the first round is a high risk endeavor    In the past 9 Years 20 QBs have been drafted in the first round.  I wanted to come up with some metrics to see the % that have worked out with the team that they drafted them   I am "measuring" the results with the simple question,   Would the NFL team make the same draft decision, at their position in that years draft, in hindsight - Its a YES/NO decision   For the ones that are still TBD (last few years) I counted these as YES. The selection of Goff as a "NO" is not that he is a horrible QB, but a simple question.... If you could do the pick again would you take Goff at number 1 overall.....  my guess is the Rams would have gone another way   2012 Draft Round 1 1st Andrew Luck - YES 2nd Robert Griffin - NO 8th Ryan Tannehil - NO 22nd Brandon Wheedon - NO   2013 Draft Round 1 16th EJ Manuel - NO   2014 Draft Round 1 3rd Pick Blake Bortles - NO 22nd Johnny Manziel - NO   2015 Draft Round 1 1st - Jameis Winston - NO 2nd Marcus Marriota  - NO   2016 Draft Round 1 1st Jared Goff - NO 2nd Carson Wentz - YES 22nd Paxton Lynch - NO   2017 Draft Round 1 2nd Mitch Trubiski - NO 10th Pat Mahomes - YES 12th Deshaun Watsun - YES   2018 Draft Round 1 1st Baker Mayfield - YES 3rd Sam Darnold - NO 7th Josh Allen - YES 10th Josh Rosen - NO 32nd Lamar Jackson - YES   With this data, drafting a QB in the first round is a 30% hit rate   The folks that want to give up 2 or 3 first round picks to move up to get Fields or Wilson may want to think deeper on this   From my perspective, and looking at the analytics it would appear that drafting the best BPA OL, DL , CB, or even WR,  available at 21 is the safest approach   And going with an extremely low risk/ low cost FA (Winston) or if the deal is decent, offering a trade to get Matthew Stafford. (Stafford route is my first choice), but I wouldnt want to  get fleeced in the trade.   If the right LT isnt there at 21, there are a few FA OTs that we could pick up       Let me know your thoughts...........
